Welcome to our website and hopefully, here you will find all the information you need about St. Margaret's Church, Great Barr.
St Margaret's Church is open for services as follows:
Thursdays 10.15 am
Sundays 11.00 am
As St Margaret’s Church has now entered an Interregnum, and following a meeting of the Archdeacon, Rural Dean and Church Wardens, the decision has been made that there will be no postings on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for the foreseeable future.
Children @ Church services are held on the 2nd and last Sundays of the month at 9.30 am and the next dates are 25 February, then 10 & 31 March 2024
Easter is early this year and so anyone wishing to have a card in memory of a loved one placed on the Cross in the church needs to complete the attached form and return it together with their donation (which will go toward the flowers in church at Easter) to the Parish Office before Wednesday 20 March at the latest.

Donations to St Margaret's Church
There is now a way to donate to St Margaret's Church using "Donate Now" set up by the Diocese of Lichfield to help their churches. Their Finance Team, with help from a local software company, Date Developments, have put a Donate Now button on the Diocese website.
As we have not been able to fix the broken link from this page, there is a "Donate Now" button on our "Help our Church" page which is working if you wish to make a donation.
In addition, there is a Gift Aid option as well as an option for donors to cover the transaction cost if they want to. As is the case with Contactless and Giving Direct, funds go into the Diocesan bank account as the registered charity and are then passed on to St Margaret’s as soon as possible along with a report showing when the donations were made.
